>>> let me finish with this. the big story tonight is the president's nomination of chuck hagel. i think the fair thing to do is to give this nomination a solid chance. let's see if he's the kind of person to give this enormous responsibility. personally, i think the attacks on him have been pushed hard by the right wing. the right wing doesn't like his approach to military action. they're raring to go. he's restrained, skeptical of what war can achieve, like anwar sadat, yitzhak rabin. the g.i.s have to do the actual fighting. so when you watch the hearings, think of the americans out there on post tonight all alone in a place far from home. give some thought to the possibility they'd like to have a pentagon chief who knows just what that's like. and that's "hardball for now," thanks for being with us. the ed show with ed schultz starts right now. >> good evening and welcome to new york. the republicans are whining about the president's choice for defense secretary. tonight a reminder of who won the election and why this is the perfect guy. let's get to work. >> chuck hagel is the

hagel nomination. you have come out with a pretty stark defense. you write of the disparaging claments republicans are making against him and quoting you, most of that is false and the rest is irrelevant. now, what did you mean by this because wee keep being told by conservative that is mr. hagel is a homophobic, anti-semitic lover of hamas. >> the interesting thing is when senator hagel was a republican senator, various of his colleagues, republican senators, had a very high view of his foreign policy credentials, including senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. now that he's actually been tapped by this democraticed a m, they have some problems and they have to check into his record. even a guy that was one of them before, once he is blessed by president obama is persona nongrata among the congressional republicans. they're going to have a tough time i think making the case against chuck hagel who was twice wounded in vietnam as an enlisted man going up against the chicken hawks of the united states senate, and he's not going to take a lot of grief from them. he's a guy who has bl
hagel knows all the folks in the upper chamber. two out of five weren't even there when he was. will his meet and greet help ward off the threat of defeat for his nomination to run the pentagon? and three is a magic number. it' it's the "the daily rundown"'s third anniversary. some surprises along the way. good morning from washington. it's friday, january 11th, 2013. this is "the daily rundown," i'm chuck todd. boy, three years? a different part, huh? let's get to my first reads of the morning. vice president biden will present his recommendations on gun violence to the president tuesday. white house officials say an assault weapons ban will still be an element of whatever final package is proposed, despite reporting to the contrary this morning. and while in a 15-minute statement for cameras yesterday, biden emphasized an emerging consensus around a set of what he called gun safety proposals. he did not mention the assault weapons ban idea once. >> there is a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggests that we have universal background checks. i've never quite heard as mu
to see you, chris. former senator chuck hagel, of course, just nominated for secretary of defense, he would be part of this pull-out. he's a guy that was not in favor of the troop surge, has a controversial side to him in that regard. what do we expect from him? >> reporter: basically, michael, wasn't in favor of the surge in iraq, not quite so critical of the surge in afghanistan. it's a big difference. on the surge in iraq, he called it one of the biggest foren policy blunders since vietnam. chuck hagel was part of the planning for the afghanistan surge under president obama. he consulted with the president's national security adviser and when he gave a speech shortly after that surge was announced didn't have much criticism for president obama, said he was approaching the situation very carefully. so that suggests that his position may be a lot more aligned with president obama on afghanistan than it was during the later years of president bush. >> yeah. president karzai, meeting him, he wants u.s. security personnel to stick around after 2014, that's going happen, but he's highly
leaders have dedicated their lives to protecting our country. >> shepard: former senator chuck hagel for secretary of defense and counter terrorism advisor john brennan for the head of the cia. confirmation hearings loom on capitol hill. tonight, the tough questions ahead on the war in afghanistan. terrorism, iran, and u.s. support for israel. plus, the chairman of google lands in north korea on a controversial trip with former new mexico governor bill richardson. >> we're here as individual american citizens. >> bill: so. >> shepard: so what's the internet titan doing in the world's least connected nation? and the suspect in last summer's colorado movie theater killing spree back in court. tonight, our first look at the prosecution's case against james holmes. and that's first from fox this monday night. it was a painfully difficult day in the courtroom where aurora, colorado police officers testified the victims were crying out for help. blood all over the place. the movie still playing overhead. cell phones ringing. chaos all around the families of the massacre victims hearing emo
now back from vacation. more specifically about the former nebraska law maker chuck hagel and the reports he will be picked as early as tomorrow as the secretary of defense choice to replace leon panetta by the president. the white house has been mum, said nothing more specifically about that. there have been a lot of rumblings about this. it would be a contentious nomination battle, as we noted on the sunday morning shows, for a variety of reasons. for one, we heard from senator lindsey graham of south carolina today, who said, among other things, that chuck hagel was, quote, out of the mainstream on foreign policy issues and said, in reference to the potential that he would be picked, for the president it would be what he called an in your face selection, saying that it was just more -- a greater effort to get sort of up against the republicans and to continue the battle lines as they have already been drawn. that goes specifically, lindsey graham's concerns, to some past comments that chuck hagel had made about israel. he referred to the jewish lobby that offended some
hey, look a little bit more, they found the cyanide in his body. >>> chuck hagel firing back at critics who question his support for israel. in his first interview since the president nominated him to be defense secretary, the former nebraska senator told a lincoln newspaper his record is being distorted and an accurate assessment will reveal unequivocal total support for israel. >>> and in the next hour of "early start," we'll be joined by peter beinart, correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast about the implications of hagel's nomination. >> a fascinating talk. >>> james holmes is expected in court today again in colorado. a police officer testified that holmes was, quote, very, very relaxed. the preliminary hearing will determine if holmes will stand trial in this case. 12 people were killed in the shooting and, of course, dozens and dozens were wounded. >>> and bells will be ringing across tucson today marking two years since the shooting that killed six and severely wounded congresswoman gabrielle giffords. giffords and her husband, mark kelly, also announcing a
a fascinating story regarding charles schumer. it seems that chuck schumer is the key to chuck hagel's failure or success. tell us why. >> that's right. and first we have to do happy friday. >> happy friday. >> happy friday. >> boy, do we need that. >> and this is a surprise. senator schumer has been telling his allies in new york, especially jewish groups, that would be, quote, very hard, very hard for him to support chuck hagel for pentagon head because of his positions on israel the other day. the real canary in the coal mine on the trouble that the hagel nomination has faced was on "meet the press" several weaks ago when senator schumer surprisingly wouldn't commit to supporting him. and usually when the president has a nominee, favorite nominee, a name out there, the number three democrat in the senate, chuck schumer, is going to say sure, i'll support him. he said he's going to listen for the hearings. and that's where he still is. just wednesday at a private breakfast at park avenue winter, one of those fancy restaurants up there, senator schumer was saying that he was very uneasy about
battle, some will be bruising, none more so than the president's pick for defense secretary, chuck hagel. those hearings could start as early as this week we're told by senate sources and the white house mounted a vigorous defense and hagel says his record on israel, iran and gays in the military has been distorted and the senate armed services committee, kelly ayotte says what worries her most is the reaction from iran. >> what i want to make sure is that iran is actually not hopeful, but they're fearful, as r ult of our nominee from the secretary of perspective. >> former chairman of joint chiefs and secretary of state colin powell gave his backing to hagel today then though then senator hagel was one of the largest critics of the iraq war, a war that powell helped sell to the american people. and hagel later tried to stop the surge in iraq, calling it the biggest foreign policy blunder since vietnam. >> superbly qualified based on his overall record, based on his service to the country, based on how he feels about troops and veterans and families. >> reporter: the president is gearin
. >>> president obama is expected to nominate chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. that announcement would happen as soon as tomorrow. hagel would replace current defense secretary leon panetta, of course lives down in monterey. he's represented the state of nebraska from 1997 until his retirement in 2009 and he may be facing an uphill battle during his confirmation hearings. some lawmakers say that i object to his views on iran and israel. gay rights organizations are concerned about disparaging comments he made about a gay former diplomate. >>> another battle looming on the nation's best. >> that sounds like deja vu all over again. president obama says raising the debt ceiling needs to be done in order to avoid a government default and he wants congress to solve that problem. but he says he's not going to be pulled into a debate about it this year. republicans, however, may want to fight. they may tie the debt ceiling to spending cuts if they haven't -- that they haven't gotten so far. they see it as an opening and going to happen at the end of february when the debt limit comes up
secretary chuck hagel one of a number of cabinet nominations the senate will take up including treasury and defense secretary and secretary of state. we heard treasury geithner will leave his position by the end of this month. the debate has renewed on sunday morning and around the country on gun violence. we want to ask you just what are the solutions? it is an issue the president says will be a top priority in the year ahead. our gone lines are open with the numbers on the screen. you can send us an e-mail at journal at c-span.org. or facebook.com/c-span or cspanwj. another shooting that took place in aurora, colorado, a town hit by the mass shooting at a movie theatre. this from a barricaded gunman and three people found dead in aurora after police exchanged gunfire with the gunman that took place yesterday. a woman earlier in the day escaped uninjured from the home saying she saw three lifeless bodies inside and said the man was firing shots at the residents before 3:00 in the morni morning. during a subsequent standoff the gunman behaved irrationally, ignored commands to exit the p
on hagel and kerry to make good on that promise that he put forward in 2008 to scale down the u.s. involvement. the american public wants it, and he's going to deliver in the second term. >> margie, what is interesting about the two appointments that victoria just mentioned, hagel and brennan are both people the president has worked with. he seems to trust the allies. not the same in the lincoln term of rivals. these are not rivals. these people are close to the president. change in strategy here? >> no, i don't think so. i think the president has had people who have different points of view from himself and from each other. we saw that in the case with secretary gates and vice president biden who recommended against making the call on osama bin laden. but the president made it anywhere. i also think it's important to look at how the president keeps momentum of bringing everyone together. in style of bringing everyone together in his administration and across the aisle and voters. i mean, voters -- they selected obama, they voted for obama in 2008. they believed in him and they
senator kerry and former senator hagel nominated to head state and defense. lew's nomination follow it is announcement that the labor secretary leaving her post and comes the same week as "the new york times" report that questions the growing lack of diversity in the president's inner circle. >> it's embarrassing as hell. we have been been through with mitt romney and we were hard on mitt romney with the women binders and a variety of things and i kind of think there's no excuse with the second term. with the first term, you can say people got to know who's around that's qualified to get the job. >> joining me now, political reporter of "the washington post" and former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, also a political analyst for nbc news and on all day long talking about this and other issues. does charlie rangel have a point? may not be something that support the president want to hear but is he basing this in fact here? >> well, what's interesting about what rangel said was that he's actually sayi ining someth that you hear privately. you have heard this time and time again. the
unhappiness when i read about chuck hagel's remarks from 14 years ago, which i didn't remember, but now the question is he's a man who is going to help us withdraw from afghanistan and reduce the military. i'm very encouraged by that. my one criticism of the president was he wasn't going far enough in reducing the military. i think people now understand that it's either keeping troops in nato or cutting medicare, and i think the american people are on the side of medicare. >> if hagel gets confirmed, do you think you could help him do the job of reforming at the pentagon and saving some money? >> yes, i think -- well, in the first few months -- i won't be there long enough even if i get it. but the job there is to run interference for him. by the way, some basic politics, you understand, chris, cutting existing weapons systems with all the web of contracts out there can be hard, but what you can do is not start new ones. it's easier to block projects that shouldn't be done going forward than to start them, and i certainly will be there. i hope he's going to continue to support the notio
speaking with authority, but is this not another good reason for chuck hagel's nomination because he, unlike so many of his fellow republicans, prefers to act cautiously when it comes to these forays over seas? >> well, two things. he prefers to act cautiously using war as a last resort instead of a rather more immediate choice as had been the case over the last decade, but he's also a big supporter of working multilaterally and that's why he had been so critical of the bush administration in iraq. the problem wasn't necessarily that going into afghanistan too quickly. it was that we got distracted for all those years in iraq and let the situation in afghanistan deteriorate. chuck hagel was right at the time in criticizing the bush administration on this. that's why it has long struck me you would want a man who does not want to rush into warfare as a first resort sitting there in charge of the pentagon. >> right. mike, on a slightly broader scale, are you at all concerned that this president's rightful desire to get our troops out of these entrenched and intractable conflicts, that
that the nomination like chuck hagel, which is fairly controversial, nonetheless is sure to be a winner for him because he's got the power of the presidency at a moment when he feels, you know, it is never going to be more powerful for him and in the rest of the second term. jon: i made that observation the other day because chuck hagel is not popular among some, even in the republican party. so the president gets to look bipartisan by nominating a republican, but it's a republican who doesn't enjoy widespread support or at least unanimous support from members of his own party. >> well, you know, you touched on something among the political pros in washington is much, a point of much conversation. you know he had challenged mitch mcconnell for leadership post while he was in the senate. so mcconnell doesn't have a whole lot of love for him. don't forget, he endorsed john kerry in that nebraska senate race that recently went to a republican. so people don't, of course he was opposed to the war. he opposed the surge in iraq. so the bush administration folks, again they don't have a whole lot of l
decide to fight for chuck hagel to be the secretary of defense? why did he decide to fight for jack lew to be secretary of treasury. he didn't fight for susan rice to be the secretary of state. >> that's a good question and i have been stunned to your point and gloria's question about the number of democratic women inside and outside the administration at very high levels that i've heard from today basically saying, you go girl, thank you for writing that column. i think valley jarrett clearly is, if not the most influential, one of the most influential women in the administration. at the same time, there is definitely a sense that this is -- that it's a boy's club, that the president is the head of. and women do feel excluded. >> they did release another picture today. a very different picture showing the staff. let's show our viewers. the picture they released today because it shows a lot of women in that picture the other day in the new york times picture. we saw a whole bunch of guys. >> where the girls are. right there in the oval office. >> of course they drk wolf. the other pictu
troops there. nominees for security of state john kerry and chuck hagel. they are likely to favor a faster withdrawal of u.s. troops. republicans are urging caution and say we need to prevent al-qaida from moving back in afghanistan. >> they moved to north africa and moving back would not be difficult if we had a vacuum. we need to make sure the troops we train there are capable of filling the vacume of the u.s. forces when they leave. >> president obama and karzai endorsed the idea of opening a taliban political office in the country of qatar to encourage them to work th us and not against us. >> thank you, molly very much. >> the great gun debate continues as vice-president biden wraps up his task force. joining us is the radio talk show host. welcome to the two of you. great to have you here today. >> wooltalk at what is in play right now. do you expect the white house is imposing ex-- executive orders? >> i don't know. i can't read their minds. i can understand the temptation. it is sensible andent and things that will not pass either of the houses of congress . it is fempting
cabinet, his picks through john kerry, jack lew, chuck hagel. they're all white guys. is the nation's first black president going to find some women or some minorities to join him? >> you know, when this conversation first started to percolate, i thought it was from the onion because it just didn't seem serious to me that we're really questioning whether or not president obama is an advocate of diversity. but i see now that it's not the onion, that it's actually real and we're actually having this conversation. i personally just think it's ridiculous. especially when you consider what i think is the most important appointments -- appointment a president can make and that's to the supreme court because long after this administration is gone, those supreme court justices are going to be there shaping the laws of this country. and who did president obama pick? not one but two women. long after he's gone out of the white house those two women, those two appointees will be there. so this conversation about the president not being in support of diversity, the same person who pushed forwar
, 15 years ago he opposed, chuck hagel opposed a nominee that was going to serve in the country of luxembourg as an ambassador, the size of a table, and he opposed him for being aggressively gay and had some tough anti-gay statements to make at the time. yes he apologized but apologized two weeks ago when his name was already being considered for secretary of defense, and yet it's okay to go after the pastor, but it's not okay to go after the nominee for secretary of defense, who is going to be making big and small decisions on a daily basis as we implement the complete repeal of don't ask, don't tell. that i think is inconsistent and verging on hypocriticahypocriti. >> just to be clear giglio pulled out on his own. president obama didn't change his mind and say get out. >> ana brings up a good point. we have to include people's evolving views on this. again i go back to what the reverend said 15 or 20 years ago, he has not disavowed. hagel has absolute disavowed what he said, and a lot of gay rights groups have taken him -- >> two weeks ago, maria, a very convenient evolution.
at the list of people that are being recycled in the cabinets, whether it is lew or kerri or hagel, donelon, the top national security advisor, the question really about this profile or is it a question about having no new blood really to bring any sort of change to washington, d.c.? >> when you have a diversity strategy, diversity of voices can only create a better america, whether dealing with policy, whether it is in a company. so if you're only going to deal with the people that you feel comfortable with, where is the true change? and again, my question is, where are those diverse groups now with the president not promoting more women, with the president not promoting more latinos, where are they on these issues? this is a double-standard. if this was a republican administration we would hear a lot about this. feminist groups would be out there raising hot water. right now unless the black caucus comes out, unless the women's caucus comes out, where is schultz schultz? where is -- debbie wasserman schultz, where is rosa today lore row or congresswoman fudge from the brac caucus? i don't
